Long-Term Exposure to Road Traffic Noise and Nitrogen Dioxide and Risk of Heart Failure: A Cohort Study

Conclusions: Long-term exposure to NO2 and road traffic noise was associated with higher risk of heart failure, mainly among men, in both single- and two-pollutant models. High exposure to both pollutants was associated with highest risk. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1272 Received: 25 October 2016 Revised: 09 August 2017 Accepted: 09 August 2017 Published: 26 September 2017 Address correspondence to M.

Unfortunately, the current rise in AMR has made biofilm-related infections a primary health-care concern, since these biofilms can no longer be effectively treated using conventional antibiotic metho...

Macroscopic plasma instabilities were the first ones to be identified and they were found to be very harmful for plasma confinement. During the first years after the Atoms for Peace Meeting in 1958, the main goals of experimental and theoretical researches dealt with their suppression or control. During this period, two special types of instabilities, the localized interchange modes and the tearing modes, were...
